"Ms. Brinkmann was the logical choice to carry out the conservation of an instrument by Joachim Tielke (1703). She is a good colleague who has earned the trust of the members of the staff of this museum. We highly value her advice and contributions." Richard T. Rephann, curator of the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments
